CUHK Halloween Seminar: Zombies and the Law: A Guide for Zombies and Their Legal Advisers
Event date: 
28 October 2016

As we approach Halloween it seems like an opportune time to explore an important, topical, issue.

“ZOMBIES AND THE LAW:  A GUIDE FOR ZOMBIES AND THEIR LEGAL ADVISERS”

Zombies and their legal advisers face many challenges – hostility, prejudice, misunderstanding on a nightly basis at the hands of the non-Zombie community.  But no-one, so far, seems to be concerned about the unmet legal need within the Zombie community.  In this groundbreaking talk, Professor Gane will attempt to redress this imbalance by examining some of the important legal questions that Zombies and their legal advisers need to understand – including:

  • Are you a Zombie?  What makes you a Zombie, and why does that matter?
  • Are you alive or are you dead? Does it matter?
  • Who – or what – to sue when you have been Zombified?
  • Defending a claim for Zombifying others.
  • Irresistible Impulse and the “Zombie attack”
  • Zombies and the law of Self Defence
  • Why Zombies should read R v Dudley and Stephens
  • What happens to your estate when you are dead – and when you come back to life?
  • Should you bite your lawyer?
  • Why you should not bite your client?

Anyone with an interest in Zombies (but not necessarily law) must attend! Professor Steve Gallagher said, “I’d give an arm and a leg to be there!” 

ALL ARE WELCOME!
